Sixth Form Transfer 2024

Open Evening


Our Prospective Sixth Form Evening is due to be held on Thursday 9th November 6.00-8.30pm. The event is open to all students/parents who are thinking about attending Richard Hale Sixth Form and would like further information about the Sixth Form and the courses we offer.

Teaching staff from all subjects, as well as members of the Sixth Form team, will be available in areas across the whole school, should you and your son or daughter wish to speak to them directly. Students from the current Sixth Form will also be in school to help you find your way around and to answer any questions from a student’s perspective. Subject venues and maps will be made available on the evening.

The Sixth Form team will be in the Dining Hall should you wish to ask us any questions about the Sixth Form in general.

Limited Parking will be available in the tennis courts in school; further parking will be available at County Hall. Please ensure you leave plenty of time to get parked and into the building if you wish to attend any of the live presentations listed below. In the past, our Prospective Sixth Form Evening has been a very busy event.

Whilst we understand some parents may wish to attend the evening in order to hear and speak to staff in person, we are very aware some families may prefer to avoid crowded indoor spaces. The recorded presentation about life in the Sixth Form by Mr Hawkins, the Head Boy and Head Girl, and Mrs Beacom about choosing the right courses, will be updated and available on the website before 9th November.

Further Information about applying to our Sixth Form is available on the ‘Applying to RHS Sixth Form’ page of our website and includes the application form for external students, details of the entry criteria and option blocks for courses, and calendar for the Sixth Form admissions process.

Please note the deadline for applications is Monday 27th November 2023.

We hope the evening, as well as the information on the website, will provide you and your child with what you need to make an informed decision about her/his post-16 journey. We very much hope that you will consider Richard Hale as a Sixth Form choice.

Once applications have been processed, applicants will be invited to interview during the Spring term.  It would be useful if students had access to their mock exam results at this time.  Emails offering conditional places will be sent out towards the end of the Spring term.
